"I’d been playing around with the chorus riff for a while, but I just couldn’t find the right lyrics to match. I then somehow started writing an apology to Charlotte for how I’d behaved when we were breaking up. I was young; we were both really young. At the time of writing I felt like I'd been a bit of an arsehole to everyone. Eventually I came up with an idea: Charlotte and I could talk about our relationship and our eventual breakup from dual perspectives. I recorded my verse and sent it over to Charlotte, without telling her what it was about, but I think she knew…she sent me back her verse lyrics and we recorded them for real the next day. I’m really pleased and proud of what we both came up with, and how honest we can be with each other."The song has a much needed emotional recharge from the bands last effort 'Money and Celebrity' and given Lunn's sincere statement above, "Taking All The Blame" has a real life feel to it and it shows in the lyrics and the banter in both Billy's and Charlotte's vocals throughout the song.
